5 cars within 10secs of each other is alot more congested than 5 cars within 13 secs of each other. Plus the track did not change length so that means it is faster, which means harder wrecks and higher tire wear. I'm working on figuring out a fix, so there is no crossover.

Jon, Luke and I changed the track so there is no more crossover. We need to tweak the infield a little more, it doesn't quite flow like the last layout did.

The Fusion is set up with 4S. All I need to do is break-in the O'Donnell in the X2 and my 1/8 buggies are ready to rock.

We are going to start racing again @ Courtney. First race is August 5th. We will be trying to make it a regular thing on the first Sunday of every month as we have in the past. If you didn't know, a group of us regularly practices on Saturday @ 0900. I don't think anyone will be there tomorrow as we have a buggy race @ RCP on Sunday.

Damn, now I know why no one was there on Saturday. I sprayed weed killer on about 75% of the track. When I was there today, there was already alot of brown.

Sunday, I just forgot we changed it. That was you passing me on my way to try out my new durango on Sunday. The truck is good, just need to dial in a little rear side bite, but my OS Speed is definitely worn out now. I also tried out my MBX6T that I converted to electric, and it is awesome.

Jon, I'm in, with Luke. I know James and Brendan are in the US, so they are out. Probably be a good Bash and BBQ day.

Everyone remember the RCP race is Sunday July 8th.

Greg, on the classes, I'm fairly certain there will be 1/8 buggy, and truggy. After that, it is a toss up, and you should probably make something generic, like "OPEN" or "RUN WHAT YOU BRUNG" class.
